you can burn CDs using EAC

if you have Vista, you may need to run in admin mode for this particular function; works fantastic

Thanks. I have spent some time on the Winamp site and can't find anything to address my particular issue. I do think it's probably Vista at the root of things.

Anyone love their music management software to the point of evangelism?

My question is, why did you upgrade your winamp? Was there an issue with the previous (working) version you had? I've been a winamp user for nigh on ten years, and i've tried most of the other players, and nothing compares favorably (altho i've never used winamp's CD burning/ripping functions).

I'm using winamp version 5.4, works great, never a hiccup.

Yeah, I suggest you delete new winamp from your new machine. Then, via wireless network, copy your old winamp to your new machine.

Simply find the Winamp program files on the old machine and allow sharing, or make the folder public. If you have a wireless network, you should be able to do this rather easily.

I have the REALLY old version which still plays SHN and FLAC files and I have used this method for several new machines.

Are you kidding me? The new one doesn't play SHN or FLAC?
I seem to have some possessed burner. Even Window media player won't burn a CD for me now. I tried to upgrade to fix the phenomenon of Winamp acting normally until I try to burn a cd and it crashes every time. I was thinking it was because of the new machine. It is interfereing with exchanges with audiophile friends from work, so some solution will need to be found. Never had a problem with Winamp until this machine...

It's possible that only the winamp Pro ($$) version allows for CD burning, someone else will have to confirm this however. I will say, there has to be a solution to your dilemma, and maybe it is your burner?? I would do a CD burn/copy using another piece of software and at least then you can rule out the burner/drive as causing you the headache. Another thing to try is do a complete uninstall of winamp, reboot your machine, and then install an earlier, proven, version of winamp. If that doesn't work, post over on the winamp forums with your problem. Someone there is sure to be able to steer you in the right direction. Good luck.

another option is to do a Google search for older versions for download, allowing one to do a clean install

ps: welcome back, hope fun was had...
